Watch Infinite Warfare YouTube Dislikes Increase in Real Time, 108,000/Hr
Well, earlier today we reported that Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is now YouTube’s fifth most disliked video. And only hours have passed, and I am back to report that it is now the fourth most disliked video, beating “Gangnam Style.”
In just a few hours Infinite Warfare YouTube dislikes increased by a few hundred thousand and it may soon reach 2 million at its current rate. Above is a brief video where refreshing the page in every 2-3 sometimes 4 seconds shows dislikes increasing in real time – sort of.
Sometimes from 20 to 30 every second while other times nearly 60 to 70. At this rate, it won’t be long before it reaches two million dislikes on YouTube. Activision is already deleting comments from YouTube, many viewers reported that the company is removing their comments.
It won’t be surprising to see them disable comments and likes/dislikes on YouTube altogether.
If the game is getting 30 dislikes per second, that is 1800 dislikes per minute and 108,000 dislikes an hour. It would take another day for it to become the second most hated video on YouTube. However, taking on Justin’s Baby song (over 6M dislikes) won’t be easy; but in Activision we trust!
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is the victim of Activision’s negligence and failure to understand what the community wants from the franchise. Majority of players will take boots on the ground any day instead of recycled sci-fi battles every year.
Multiplayer is one thing but the story died a long time ago as well. There aren’t any heartfelt moments and emotion left in COD campaigns.
What do you expect from devs that have spent most of their careers creating the same game over and over again? Do you expect creativity? If so, you shouldn’t. Either Activision will have to make some drastic changes, take a year or two off, or risk losing a huge chunk of its player base.
